USC Friday picked up a commitment from LB Mohamed Camara (6-2 205) of Cumming, GA according to the BigSpur.com. Camara also had offers from Jacksonville State and Western Kentucky. He also drew interest from Missouri, Mississippi State, West Virginia, Vanderbilt, Miami, Auburn and Florida State. Camara visited USC for the spring game and that visit put the Gamecocks in the lead for him. He is being recruited for the spur safety position. Last season he had 107 tackles with 7 sacks and 2 interceptions.
Dillon RB Jabo Lee committed Friday to East Carolina. Lee had over 1900 all-purpose yards last season and scored 29 touchdowns. Clemson and USC showed early interest but had not been doing much with him in recent weeks. Lee is the third Dillon player to commit this spring. OL DJ Park and OL Bryce King committed to USC.
DB Von Bell of Rossville, GA has offers from Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Tennessee, Arkansas, Nebraska, UCLA, Southern Cal, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame and Ole Miss among others. He believes that USC has offered as well though he has not heard from any of the coaches. He does maintain contact with a former teammate who is now at USC. “I haven’t really talked to anyone up there but I do keep in touch with Mason Harris,” he said. Harris said he’s not heard from Clemson recently either. Bell is taking the recruiting process slowly and does not have any favorites. “I’ll start narrowing my list when the time is right,” said Bell. He attended the spring game at Texas in early April. “It went pretty good,” Bell said. “It was a new experience. I got to see how things work there and meet a lot of new people.”
ATH Will Likely (5-8 175) of Belle Glades, FL has several offers that include Clemson. Likely could not remember his offers saying, “You can go to Rivals (www.rivals.com) and see them there”. According to the site, Clemson has offered but USC has not. However, Likely does believe the Gamecocks have offered him. “I want to visit both of those schools,” Likely said. “They both have great coaching staffs that find a way to win.” Other schools to offer him include LSU, Miami, Florida, Tennessee, Oregon, Purdue, Louisville, Stanford, Washington, Vanderbilt, Southern Cal, South Florida and Indiana. Thus far, Likely has taken just one visit. “I went to the LSU spring game,” he said. “It was nice. It gave me a chance to talk to the coaches and see how they do things there.” Likely does not have any favorites.
OL Ethan Pocic (6-6 290) of Lemont, IL has offers from Clemson, Illinois, Purdue, Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, Arkansas, Arizona, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Iowa, Southern Cal, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Florida, Florida State, Auburn, Tennessee and Wisconsin among others. “Alabama was the last to offer,” Pocic said. “I had narrowed my list to ten but I kept getting offers so I stopped trying.” His offer sheet is approaching 30 schools. Pocic does not have any favorites but is showing interest in the Tigers. “It’s a good school but it is really going to depend on whether I can visit them or not,” he said. Pocic is unsure of which schools he will visit over the summer. During spring break he took trips to Florida, FSU, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee and Ohio State. “They were all nice and I liked them all,” said Pocic. He does not have a leader.
Recruiters from Clemson, USC, Florida and NC State have been by to check on DE Dane Rogers of Shelby, NC. Rogers has not picked up any new offers after getting early ones from Clemson, NC State, Tennessee and Rutgers. USC, LSU and Auburn are also showing interest. Rogers said he recently talked with Clemson recruiter Dan Brooks. “He wants me to come in this summer and get to know the coaches better,” Rogers said. Rogers took no visits this spring because he was rehabbing a knee injury. He’s been invited to Florida for Friday Night Lights in July and he said he probably will go. Rogers said he has no favorites at this point. “I wish I did,” he said. “A lot of schools are showing interest that I want to look at. I’ve been places but I want to look at more.”
USC is now the front runner for 6-3 PG Willie Moore of Cincinnati following his official visit which wrapped up Friday morning. “I really like South Carolina,” Moore said. “I really, really like them. They are the favorite. The fans, they can’t wait till the season starts. And I loved the coaches. They are fun to be around. They are funny people. They said they need a point guard like me who can come in and help them.” Moore will visit Oregon next Wednesday thru Friday. He said a few days after that he will be ready to render a decision. Working in the Ducks’ favor is the presence of a good friend of Moore’s who is on the football team, and his relationship with one of the assistant coaches who use to be an assistant at Cincinnati.
